That book set the excellence level for anyone else to meet. It has no fluff, just the right amount of data. It's not a beginner C book, but for many reasons it's good to read it. I used to go through it while waiting for a bus in the snow in Stockholm 22+ years ago... --Kent

The KandR book is a great reference from the original authors of the language but it is NOT the best book to learn the language from.

I can recommend the book by Dietel and Dietel (Learning C programming or something like that. Also the book called 'C Primer Plus" is excellent.
